Drawn to Chintz

I will always be drawn to chintz china.




I become a child again,




Playing " Tea - Party ";




 Filling my cups with roses,




 Losing myself on a sunny afternoon.

    Bite sized bliss. . .

    I found a perfect desert for a celebration with the extended family.




    These mini-cupcakes seemed to please everyone. 




    There were several flavors to choose from.




    With several kinds of chocolate toppings;




    Such as light and dark chocolate shavings and chips. 




    And everyone had room for at least one.

        Once in a Lifetime

        My son turned 18 last week.





        And as I was picking out a birthday card for him in the store;





        This song started playing.




        It is a song that I have always loved.







        I remember singing it to him when he was 15.









        Now he is a man . . .

          Prickly Pear Tea ~ Part II

          As promised,

           

           
          This is a continuation of my prickly pear tea party.

           

           
          This adorable chintz teacup was also given to me by my mother;




          It belonged to my grandmother Genevieve.




           
          I am sure she would approve of my butterfly honey-clover stirrer.




          Thank you Mom for the wonderful and unique gift.




          And for your good taste.

          Prickly Pear Tea ~ Part I

          One of my Christmas presents from my mother was " Prickly Pear Tea ".




          The ' prickly pear ' is a cactus here in the desert that produces a fruit by the same name.




          I remember long ago making prickly pear jelly with my brownie troop.




          I was fascinated by the way the needles were separated from the fruit.




          Although the prickly pear grows here, it is a delicacy with a wonderful sweet taste.




          My mother said she purchased this tea at the Desert Botanical Gardens.


           


          I have a few more pictures that I will show you in my next post so stay tuned.
